Vikings Add Live Sports Radio To Game-Day Experience

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 2, 2009 – 4:11 pm

There’s nothing like actually being inside the stadium when Adrian Peterson rips off a long run or Jared Allen chases down an opposing QB. But it’s also exciting to hear Vikings Radio Network play-by-play voice Paul Allen passionately call an exciting play from the booth.

Well now Vikings fans attending games at Mall of America Field at the HHH Metrodome can get the best of both worlds. Beginning at this Monday night’s epic Vikings-Packers game, fans can purchase small, light-weight portable radio devices that will allow them to hear the Vikings Radio Network’s broadcast of the game in real time with no delay.

The devices, manufactured by a company called Live Sports Radio, Inc., are Vikings-branded and simply placed over one ear so you can hear the broadcast and still hear the immediate surroundings.

The Live Sports Radios will be sold at several locations inside and outside of Mall of America Field on game days, including outside of each gate, on the Miller Lite Plaza and at 2 kiosks in both upper and lower levels of Mall of America Field.

The devices sell for $20 and are good at every home game this season, and also serve as portable FM radios away from the stadium. For example, fans can purchase the devices and then use them to listen to the pregame broadcast on KTLK while tailgating.

Fans who attended the PGA Championship at Hazeltine this summer will recognize the devices because they are the same devices patrons were carrying on the course. To get a close look at these devices and learn more about them, click here.

    Sure, they start this the first game AFTER the one I got to go to this year! :-)

    They’ll be useless anyways. There’s no way that something going for only $20 (at a sporting event mind you) is going to be able to output enough decibles to overcome the noise in the dome!
